Royal Challengers Bangalore v Delhi Capitals: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on April 6, 2019

Things aren’t improving for the Royal Challengers. Even though the side posted in excess of 200 on Friday, an explosive KKR side chased the target down. RCB must now regroup and look for their first points of the campaign when a struggling Delhi Capitals side travel to Bangalore on Sunday. Delhi have lost their last two games and will be equally anxious to win this one. But what are our IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Delhi Capitals?

What are the IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Delhi Capitals?

If you’re taking an IPL 2019 Satta on this tie, Royal Challengers Bangalore are the clear favourites at 1.83 with Betway. It’s a number that leaves Delhi Capitals out at 2.00, and there must be some value in backing the outsiders.

The issue with Delhi, however, may stem from that shock batting collapse when they were poised to ease past Kings XI Punjab. That defeat took its toll when they put in a poor performance against Sunrisers Hyderabad. We suspect that trend will continue. RCB may also be demoralised following that latest defeat. However, they can take heart from that batting display against Kolkata and this should be the time to take full points.

Match Odds Summary: Royal Challengers Bangalore 1.83 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Delhi Capitals 2.00.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Delhi Capitals?

Betting on IPL markets involving Virat Kohli will generally offer some low prices. Nevertheless, the skipper is currently available at a reasonable 3.00 with Bet365 to score most runs against Delhi. AB De Villiers follows in his traditional position of second favourite at 4.00. Meanwhile, Parthiv Patel has top scored twice for RCB, and will therefore attract some interest at 5.50.

The selectors may want to make some changes for this game in the hope of getting that first win. Therefore, there are a number of additional options including Marcus Stoinis at 6.50, Heinrich Klassen at 8.00 and Shimron Hetmyer at 8.00.

Moving on to the Delhi Capitals, and we find Shikhar Dhawan starting as favourite at 4.00. We’ve yet to see the best of the left hander. That’s a generous price, though, and could be the best option for your IPL 2019 Satta here.

Moving through the order, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer can both be claimed at odds of 4.50. Other Capitals batters include Prithvi Shaw at 5.00, Colin Ingram at 6.00 and Hanuma Vihari at 7.00.

This could be the time for Dhawan to step. However, we’re looking to AB De Villiers to top score for Royal Challengers here. He’s more dependable and has already found some touch in this tournament. Therefore, we’ll take the South African at a decent price of 4.00.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Kohli 3.00, De Villiers 4.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Patel 5.50, Stoinis 6.50, Klassen 8.00, Hetmyer 8.00.

Delhi Capitals: Dhawan 4.00, Pant 4.50, Iyer 4.50, Shaw 5.00, Ingram 6.00, Vihari 7.00.

What are the most sixes IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Delhi Capitals?

It’s been tricky finding you any decent value for our third tip of the game. We’d like to take Yuzvendra Chahal as RCB’s top bowler, but he looks too short at 3.00 with Betway. Instead, we’ll stay with the batting and go with most sixes where there are odds against prices for both sides.

It’s a case of backing the favourites again. But with Royal Challengers available at 2.05 with Betway, that’s a decent value price for a team who are starting to find their form with the bat.

Most Sixes Odds Summary: Royal Challengers Bangalore 2.05 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Delhi Capitals 2.10, The Tie 8.00.
